CCBC owes veteran an apology

November 22, 2010

As an airborne veteran of the Korean War, I feel the Community College of Baltimore County owes Charles Whittington a public apology and reinstatement ("Fight for freedom," Nov. 21). The combat veteran had written an honest essay about his Iraq service. If the administration decided to remove all people who harbored private thoughts (and wrote about them), we may be bailing out another educational institution.

On November 11(Veteran's Day), many people would have saluted and thanked Mr. Whittington for his service to his country. I admire and respect Mr. Whittington, and I'm ashamed of the administrators who banished him from the campus.
